German Knuckle Pork Roast with Apple & Leek Gravy

1 German Pork Knuckle
4 pink lady apples cut into wedges
4 granny smith apples cut into wedges
2 leeks washed and chopped
600ml of Apple Juice
Olive Oil

Pork Method:
Heat the oven to 200 degrees. Dry the skin of the pork with some paper towel. Rub some of the oil on to the pork and season generously with salt. Pour apple juice into baking tray with the chopped apples and leek. Place pork in the baking tray at 200 degrees for 30 minutes to form crackling. Turn down to 180 degrees. Cook for a further 30 minutes each 500gm. Approximately 90 minutes for most knuckles. Rest for approximately 1/2 hour in the roasting tray. Remove pork from roasting juices and place on a warm plate. Set aside.

Gravy Method:
Use the pan juices from the pork roast and all the apple & leek. Mash with a fork. If its not thick enough, use a little plain flour to thicken it. Roast some of your favourite vegetables to go with this delicious meal. Or pair with a nice potato Bake. Or make a delicious pork knuckle sandwich!
